Celebrate National Public Lands Day by working a trail-restoration project Saturday on the Mormon Pioneer Trail in Dell Canyon.---

In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker’s Office, Salt Lake County, and nonprofit groups Save Our Canyons and the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation, you can help remove dead growth and vegetation from the Mormon Pioneer Trail in Dell Canyon. The Mormon Pioneer Trail is a lovely gem of a trail that also happens to cross several important Salt Lake City watershed areas.

Give your trails a little love this Saturday. To register, contact the Public Lands Information Center at 801-466-6411 or e-mail

Then, make trails on Saturday, Sept. 24, from 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m.

Volunteers should meet Affleck Park in Dell Canyon. To access Dell Canyon, take exit 134 on I-80 and travel north on State Highway 65 for six miles. Travelers coming from Emigration Canyon should follow the road to Highway 65 and then turn north. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
